Katakroken

Katakroken | by PrimerFrame from PrimerFrame on Vimeo.

This short film centres around the conflict between two primitive cave-dwellers. One is a giant yet gentle pink yeti-type and the other a grungy black and white thug. What begins as a traditional Tom and Jerry style chase, develops into a deeper metatextual take on conflict, as our big pink fella can't help but see the art in his surroundings.

Scrambled

A typical modern teenager Esra misses her train causing her to feel frustrated and angry. She slumps onto a bench on a train platform and starts to play a frenetic and mind blowing game on her smart phone. A Rubik's cube decides she needs some 'calm' and approaches to assist with some interesting outcomes.

Johnny Express

JOHNNY EXPRESS from 274custom on Vimeo.

In the year 2150, Johnny, a lazy Space Delivery Man, must deliver a package on a planet he does not fully understand. When the spaceship arrives at its new destination all he has to do is simply deliver one tiny package on this new planet. However his latest delivery doesn't go as planned. The planet is so small it takes him only 5 minutes to circumvent it looking for anyone to deliver to. While his problems are small, on a much smaller scale the residents of the planet have some very big problems.

The action cuts quickly between Johnny's frustration in looking for but not finding the alien to deliver the package to and the chaos he unknowingly creates on the planet. This short film is full of slightly dark humour and dramatic sequences - be prepared for a shock ending.

This animation focuses on a cat named Rodney living in an apartment block with a bird, a dog, and of course the tough lady of the house, Nel.

Rodney is obsessed with the bird, but has been warned by the lady of the house that dire consequences will occur if the bird is harmed.

This 'short' spirals out of control with many funny catastrophic events occurring.
